Ms. Esch

I am a 4th grade teacher and have been teaching at Mc Auliffe for 14 years. If you are needing to contact me, the absolute best and most timely way to do so is by writing a note and returning it with your child in their red daily folder. As long as I do not have a sub, I check them daily and will reply back to you the same day. Please be aware that I typically only log into my e-mail once daily and that e-mails have been known to go to spam.
